The Great Divide


When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other?

Really! Like seriously? Is there really a great divide between anything?

My take?

I’ll stick to the “there’s a thin line school-of-thought”, because it’s almost seamless moving from one to the next.

And what am I ranting about today? You asked why I choose to read FICTION over NON-FICTION, who told you I even make that choice. As a voracious reader, I read anything as long as it is interesting, why should I limit myself to only one side of the fun, when there are other exciting worlds outside of my limited view. Why get stuck up with the same boring tasteless read when I can find excitement, have endless fun weaving through other minds.

I read both Fiction and Non-Fiction depending on what my reading conquest is at the moment. From my point of view, Fiction is actually Non-Fiction viewed through Rose-coloured glasses, where you try to hide the real event or identity of the persons involved just so you can tell their story and they don’t get mad at you. Ask The Bestman, he’d know better.

And since you are keen on finding out dear WordPress 🙂 , when I require FUN, I don’t read, I unravel my puzzles…now how’s that for another prompt? wink

    • Great.
      But like it occured to me while writing about ‘The Great Divide’, it is truly true-life stories that are given pseudonyms (most times) and exaggerated add-ons. But I love your reason for reading fiction.
      I love THRILLERS though…I want to unravel ‘who-did-what-and-why?’
